Minecraft: Story Mode goes dark on June 25th

Minecraft maker Mojang has revealed that Telltale’s Minecraft: Story Mode will be removed from stores by the end of this month.

Speaking on “behalf of the publisher”, Telltale, Mojang announced that the popular spin-off will be removed from sale on June 25th. With both seasons on the chopping block, Mojang recommends that owners of Story Mode "download all remaining episodes prior to the service being discontinued in June."

"As you might have heard, its publisher is no longer in business, which unfortunately means that Minecraft: Story Mode will no longer be supported," said Mojang in an official statement.

Telltale’s catalogue is being wiped off the map. Just last week, GOG.com removed all Telltale games from its shelves with no suggestion that they’ll ever be made available again.

It’s not an impossibility, however. Borderlands publisher 2K Games has stressed that it is "working to get Tales from the Borderlands back up on digital storefronts as soon as possible."
